Channel Your Inner Southern Spirit with These Sweet Tea Moonshine Cupcakes


You guys, I just really need a typewriter, like right now.

I don’t know what it is, but something about these Sweet Tea Moonshine Cupcakes by Stef over at the Cupcake Project just fills my imagination with all things Prohibition-Era South – you know, sprawling estates, courtly Southern manners, bootleg distilleries. And while I don’t have a clue if any of those things even really existed in the P.E.S., I am a sucker for a good bout of drunken writing, especially when done on a perfectly old, perfectly beat-up typewriter. Sigh.

But I digress. Cupcakes, wasn’t it?

Perfect for late night walks around the plantation or out by the bayou (or I guess, just around the neighborhood, if you’re into that), these scrumptious little darlings feature something called “tea butter” and a whole 1/2 cup of Strawberry Midnight Moon. I’d bet it tastes so good, it must be illegal.

Check out the full recipe and photos, here.
